T. E. Williams: The Lost Colour Collection Volume 1 (Irwell)

£24.95
Back Order

An album of high quality colour photographs from the collection of the late Tom Williams. Tom is best known for his extensive black-and-white photographic work, donated to the National Railway Museum in York by his family after his untimely death at the age of forty-nine in 1980. His little-known 35mm colour transparency work, however, has remained largely unseen and unpublished until now. Digitally restored, this book presents a cross section of these colour images taken between 1954 and 1966. Most photographs show main line steam in action on the Western Region of British Railways, but rarer and lesser photographed locations, such as the ex-Stratford-upon-Avon and Midland Junction Railway are also included. Tom’s colour slide collection contains arguably some of the finest and most important previously unseen colour images of steam in action to see the light of day for several decades. All photographs are presented in one-per-page format with a caption at the foot of each page. A short introduction to the photographer is also included. Hardback. 124 pages.
